Campus Chapel

College chapel is a vital and distinctive part of the HLGU experience. Chapel helps define who we are and what we stand for as a Baptist, church-related, evangelical institution of higher education.

The purpose of chapel is to provide a forum for corporate worship, spiritual encouragement, and educational and cultural enrichment for the HLGU community, however it is not intended to serve as a substitute for church attendance or affiliation.

Chapel Attendance

Attendance is recorded by scanning student ID cards as students enter the Parker Theatre. In the event that the card reader is not reading a students' ID, the student may present their card to have their number written down prior to entering the theatre. This occurrence should be rare and the student should have their card replaced immediately. Students who arrive at Chapel later than 10:15 a.m. will not receive credit. Students who depart from a chapel service prior to the official conclusion will not receive credit for chapel. For more information on chapel attendance requirements, please see the HLGU Student Handbook.
